Alzheimer's deaths in Oklahoma are rapidly rising

Alzheimer's deaths in Oklahoma are rapidly rising

Treatment of dementias and Alzheimer's disease costs the healthcare system $277 billion this year, the report finds.

"Similar scientific breakthroughs are needed for Alzheimer's disease, and will only be achieved by making it a national health care priority and increasing funding for research that can one day lead to early detection, better treatments and ultimately a cure", Fargo added. By 2050, that will occur every 33 seconds, the experts said. In Kentucky, there were 1,694 deaths from Alzheimer's disease in 2015 - over a 10 percent increase from 2014.

Although deaths from other major causes have decreased significantly, official records indicate that deaths from Alzheimer's disease have increased significantly.

"Diagnosing Alzheimer's earlier has huge cost-savings implications", said Keith Fargo, Ph.D., director of scientific programs and outreach for the Alzheimer's Association. "Alzheimer's is a burden that's only going to get worse". This level of care giving additionally costs $11.4 billion for the healthcare needs of the care givers.

The report estimates that previous year the lifetime costs of an Alzheimer's patient were $329,360 and 70 percent of this was borne by the families.

· Total payments for health care, long-term care and hospice care for people with Alzheimer's and other dementias are projected to increase to more than $1.1 trillion in 2050 (in 2018 dollars).

Given the long duration of this disease, the strain on Alzheimer's caregivers can last several years and produce serious declines in caregiver physical, emotional and financial well-being.

· Almost half of all caregivers (48 percent) who provide help to older adults do so for someone with Alzheimer's or another dementia. In addition, costs are lower once a person with Alzheimer's gets on the right care path. Families bear 70 percent of that cost through out-of-pocket expenses and the value of unpaid care. Adults caring for Alzheimer's patients spent 18.4 billion hours in unpaid care to Alzheimer's patients that is worth an estimated $232 billion.

About one in three caregivers (34 percent) is age 65 or older. Only 9 percent of nurse practitioners are trained to care for old age.

A new report shows that Alzheimer's disease cases and the costs of treatment and hospitalization due to this disease and deaths due to this condition are on the rise. Alzheimer's is the sixth-leading cause of death in the US, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In an accompanying report on the benefits of early diagnosis, researchers said that spotting Alzheimer's disease early could save the United States as much as $7.9 trillion in health and long-term care costs. We offer Support Groups throughout the state - both for people living with the disease and caregivers, a respite reimbursement program for caregivers, free care consultations, a 24/7 Helpline and much, much more.
